Clean the scallops and remove the coral and the thin band from around the outside of the scallops. Slice each scallop into 3 rounds.
Remove the pin bones from the salmon and slice very thinly.
Dressing: Whisk the lime juice, Tabasco, both oils and the chives in a bowl and season to taste. Adjust with more lime juice or olive oil if needed.
To serve: Arrange the scallops in a circle on each plate, leaving the centre free for the salad. Place the salmon around the outside of the scallops. Drizzle over the dressing and leave to sit for 15 minutes. Put the salad ingredients in a bowl and toss with the oil and lemon juice. Season. Place a small stack of salad in the centre of each plate and serve immediately.
